|"Rosendalen" - Rose Valley in English. My happy place and therefor also the name of my blog My Rose Valley.|
|Hans Rosendahl was my grandfather's brother. He was a ceramic artist. He built this house and lived here until he died.|
|Vacation crochet of course! From left: The Shawl, a stool cover project that was left behind and my pot holder |
together with my new cool specs. :D
We were outside, in the water, in the woods, on the fields, markets, cafées... We were pulling fish off the hook, doing dishes by hand, sipping coffee, listening to birds in the morning, killing flies, sleeping in collective arrangements. Talking about life and about nothing. Laughing. Like you only can life with your family. 14 people together for 21 days in a red and white Swedish cottage somewhere in the archipelago north of Stockholm. It was intense, chaotic and absolutely wonderful!!!
We collected wild flower seeds to bring back home to Switzerland. To plant next spring. To feel more "at home" in "my home". Many childhood memories were made. The Swedish language has blossomed for my kids. Its been good. It was necessary. I now have new plans, energy, ideas. I am ready to take on fall and start on new projects, learn new things. Challenge myself - make my dreams come true. I am happy. Next time I show you even more.
